    Here are some awesome NEW disclosures about the huge water content of the mantle of the Earth from the University of Texas http://www.jsg.utexas.edu/news/feats/2007/bodnar.html, an absolutely fascinating read, and I look forward to your comments, particlurly from the Lyellian Darwinites.

    "Three times the water below as in the oceans," my oh my.

    so now the mantle will be sucked dry?

    Yes, but what would make them empty, as spaces that could be filled later with deluge waters? If they are filled now, they must have been filled in the past due to the presence of the Oceans.

    Only if you suck hard enough.

    I don't get your correlation.

    Water comes with magma, big time, and no doubt came with magma in the past, perhaps in even larger percentages, but plenty of water for the Deluge, afterall, the crustal thickness of the Earth is comparable to the skin on an apple, or like 1 foot of length compared to the length of a football field, precarious indeed, sitting on top of all that water.

    IAC, why don't you enlighten everyone as to why all that magma would suddenly out of nowhere come up out of the mideoceanic rift zones?

    Don't worry, since I've already asked you this question, I'll just tell everyone. Here is IAC's incredible theory as to how this great amount of magma magically started pumping out of the rift zones:

    "The exploded planet which was between Jupiter and Mars caused debris to strike the Earth, inducing the Deluge."

    Somehow, debris hitting the earth miraculously affected sub-crustal processes in extraordinary ways. In any case, how did this planet explode, Ice?

    "Don't know that."

    So somehow, the explosion of a planet millions of miles away caused the earth's plate tectonic system to speed up to miraculous rates. :bugeye:

    How 'bout them apples?

    By th way, your thread title is incorrect. Just because someone doubts your personal, literal interpretation of Genesis doesn't mean they don't support a more rational view of Genesis (such as the creation "days" weren't actual, 24 hour days).

    Oh NO! You've really got us all over a barrell this time IAC! Lets everyone just abandon all other interpretations and convert to religion X?

    OR,

    Then again, IAC could actually answer some of the questions from his previous, (very similarly themed - and therefore should probably be amalgamated) "Sedimentary Means Water Deposited" thread...

    IAC, did you actually read the article?

    From the article,

    The speed at which sound travels through the mantle suggests that the rocks in the area of the mantle known as the transition zone contain on the order of 0.5 percent water (by weight). These seismic studies agree more or less with Smyth’s conjecture.

    Note that there is a slight difference between 80% and 0.5%.

    LOL. You gotta love it.

    I wonder where the 80% came from anyway (other than IAC's fantasy land).

    LOL. From the looks of the poll results so far at the Religion section, "Old or Young Earth," it doesn't seem like IAC has convinced many people of his hypothesis.

    That's in the transiton zone, the article says that there is three times the water now in the oceans in the mantle, so about four times before the Deluge, obviously.

    IAC, explain again how debris from an exploded planet caused the Deluge. And how did Noah somehow evade the resulting tsunamis or the massive debris that must have been needed to cause a deluge (so massive it's impossible, lol)?

    The debris hit our planet, which induced tectonic activity.

    The comets in our solar system are debris from the exploded planet, there is not indication that the so-called Oort Cloud exists.

    IAC, What magical force did Noah invoke to stop all of the animals on the Ark from devouring one another?

    Patience and cages, hibernations, just common sense.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. Explain how debris hitting our planet caused the earth's tectonic activity to speed up tremendously and caused the earth to suddenly pump out billions of cubic miles of magma?

    What he kept freshwater fish in cages!? I thought it was Moses that did things with water?
